Vegetarians, those who avoid meat, represent 5% of the US population, and vegans, additionally avoiding dairy and eggs, 2%.

Vegetarian diets confer protection against

  • cardiovascular diseases,
  • cardiometabolic risk factors,
  • some cancers, 
  • total mortality.

Compared to lacto-ovo-vegetarian diets, vegan diets seem to offer additional protection for

  • obesity,
  • hypertension,
  • type-2 diabetes, 
  • cardiovascular mortality.

Life is as dear to a mute creature as it is to a man. Just as one wants happiness and fears pain, just as one wants to live and not to die, so do other creatures.
